  • Terry on Jay Peg colt, “This horse has a really exciting pedigree. Jay Peg was a top, top racehorse and has what it takes to be a very successful stallion. This horse is well balanced, has good bone, and a kind eye. You can tell he was raised the right way and has room to mature and develop. I’m excited about him.”
